Percy Nilegård has gotten in to the commercial radio business. The radio station rents premises of the fire station and its chief, the self willed Greger who's in charge of six well built firemen. One of them gets a presentation first in every episode, when we get into their special and relaxed relationship to each other. Percy is always after money and his ways to entice sponsors get more and more unconventional. We also follow the main radio host Glenn Killing with various (and often peculiar) guests. And also other shows like a reggae program, a Friday party program, teenage psychologist (and stereo fetishist) Farbror Barbro and Percy's own "Management Profile". Written by

Nilecity is probably the most beloved Swedish comedy show ever. Everyone in Sweden, at least everyone I know of, totally love "killing boysen", the gang of comedians behind NileCity. They have done a lot of good comedy shows for Swedish television, but this one is without doubt the best one yet! The show reruns in SVT with a year or two in between, and allthough you know every line you'll still be "Rolling On The Floor Laughing".
Without NileCity as inspiration I doubt shows like "Varan TV", "Parasit TV", "Humor Labbet" and of course "keh Algeriet's home videos" would ever been made.
